Dr. Virginia Uldrick is the driving force behind many of the art advancements in Greenville: the Governer’s School for the Arts, teaching love for music and the arts, and establishing the Fine Arts Center. This statue is located in the roundabout at University Street at the entrance to the Governor’s School and shows her energy as though she were conducting an orchestra.

There will be several events to observe the memory of 9/11: the first is Greenville Heroes Day, which will be dedicated by mayor Knox White at 7:45 in NOMA Square. There are 2,977 flags planted around the block of NOMA Square to represent each person tragically killed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. The event will also raise scholarship funds for Greenville city police officers and firefighters (Text2Pledge: Send keyword HERO1 to 414-44).
